    I worked at Wells Fargo as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    I like the folks at Wells Fargo. There's a lot of great company culture there for full-time employees, and those who got in early reap great benefits for staying on, plus they help those out who are coming on to new jobs.

    Cons

    Wells Fargo has been sourcing talent via contract for years. I've seen several of my talented co-workers go because their contracts were over. This is business as usual for Wells Fargo. They let people go who've gained industry knowledge and the ability to make some great change for the department. Why? Because the middle managers are not able to keep them on.

    My advice is that if you take a contract from Wells Fargo, make sure you're looking for the next one six months before your contract ends.

    Advice to Management

    Dear Management, the company culture you bring to your employees is nice. Well, not so nice since you banned spouses from coming to holiday parties, but okay. But the culture of not allowing contractors to participate in meetings and celebrate the success of the company is shameful. You're eating your bread and butter on this golden life of having contractors work for you, and you offer them no way for them to be a part of the team. Also, folks who are full-time employees look down on contractors. The culture is askew, so fix it with your vast team of HR managers. Thanks.

    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time

    Pros

    Everyone you work with wants you to succeed and advance and grow in the company. Good starting pay and a lot of PTO that grows a lot the longer you stay with them. There are like 14 paid bank holidays per year plus paid sick days and ample PTO. This helps your work/life balance a lot especially in the long run when a few years down the road you get weeks of PTO/year.

    You go through training, and get immense support from everyone around you when you first start. You don't have to have a lot of experience, just motivation to work. Team building is strong here.

    Constant learning and development and support from everyone around you. You learn a lot. It gets repetitive though but if you do your job well you won't hear it.

    Clear advancement paths that you are pushed to go for.

    Cons

    Depends on how busy of a branch you are working in, it can be fast paced at times.

    Management reinforces things a lot which gets redundant, but only because they are pressured by their superiors to do so.

    Repetitive lessons and spiel's.

    Advice to Management

    Put the Kool-Aid down every now and then
